See a solution process below:


We can rewrite this problem as:

What is 65% of 160?

"Percent" or "%" means "out of 100" or "per 100", Therefore 65% can be written as #65/100#.

When dealing with percents the word "of" means "times" or "to multiply".

Finally, lets call the number of games we are looking for "g".

Putting this altogether we can write this equation and solve for #g# while keeping the equation balanced:

#g = 65/100 xx 160#

#g = 10400/100#

#g = 104#

The soccer Team won 104 games.
